With 8 Starters Back Green Sea Floyds Softball Looking For Much Improved Season

By Billy G. Baker


Green Sea—As Henry Martin begins his third season as the head softball coach at Green Sea Floyds, he is encouraged by the fact the majority of his team returns after posting an 11-11 record last year with a deep run in the Class A playoffs.

“Our team’s biggest strength coming the season lies in the fact we only graduated one part-time starter from last year’s team,” said Coach Martin. “We are hoping to build on some late success last year with a goal of having a better season.”

Four hitters who batted over .400 last season return so hitting should be one of the strengths of the team this season. Senior shortstop Grace Elliott returns after batting .541 last year with 12 doubles, three home runs, and a .905 fielding percentage. Senior Alexis Cox returns as a utility performer who can play either catcher or in center field. Cox batted .468 with two home runs and 13 stolen bases.

Junior Caroline Davis returns to hold down first base once again after she batted .440, with four runs and a .917 fielding percentage. Rounding out the .400 plus hitting club is sophomore talent Bailey Strickland who is a pitcher/catcher who hit .467 with 11 doubles last year. In the circle she pitched 50.1 innings with 35 strikeouts. She was a member of the HSSR All-State Class A team.

Other key players who should start including junior outfielder Chance Caulder, junior outfielder Abby Marlowe, sophomore third baseman Maci Buffin, sophomore second baseman Bailey Carroll and freshman first baseman Haley Owens.

Green Sea Floyds has already played in five games this season. They are 3-2 in these games with a 12-3 season opening win against Carvers Bay on February 29. Against the Lady Bears Strickland, Caulder and Owens each had two hits. Strickland was the winning pitcher scattering 8 hits and striking out five GSF batters. The other two wins came over Williamsburg Academy 4-2 and Georgetown 12-0. The two losses were to St. James High School.

 After an away game at Hannah-Pamplico on March 9 the team will travel to play East Columbus, N.C. on the 11th. GSF hosts Socastee on March 12 and South Columbus, N.C. comes to GSF on March 16. Marion is at GSF on the 19th then the Lady Swamp Foxes host the Lady Trojans on the 23rd. On March 27 GSF travels to Lake View for a key region game.
